Catch these Broadway shows this summer before they close

Don't miss your last chance to see these hit Broadway musicals and plays.

Dear Evan Hansen

Broadway is up and thriving this summer, with nearly 30 shows playing in the Theatre District's venues. There are lots of long-running and new musicals and plays you can see these next few months, but there are also some shows you have to see, because they'll be closing in the fall. Tony Award winners like Dear Evan Hansen and limited-run audience favorites like POTUS will be closing their doors soon, but the good news is that there are still plenty of tickets available for their remaining performances.

Since the shows won't be on for long, though, the best tickets may not be around for long. So get your tickets now to see these Broadway shows closing soon, because they may not be here by the time you visit New York next. And if you're a local who's been meaning to get around to one of these shows, now is the time. Read more about the Broadway shows ending their runs this summer and early fall, and get your Broadway tickets now while you're here.

Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Broadway theatregoer, today is going to be a good day and here's why: you can still get tickets to Dear Evan Hansen through September 18, and you can see Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo in the show beginning July 19. This moving musical about a teenager who gets swept up in a tragedy, an an ensuing movement in support of social outsiders, has been on Broadway since 2016. The show won six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and the New York Theatre Guide review reads, "Dear Evan Hansen is a show that holds you tight with its honesty of story told in a way that delights you to your very toes." But nothing lasts for forever, so get your tickets now before the run ends.

Come From Away

Come From Away has made honorary Newfoundlanders out of thousands of audiences since its Broadway premiere in 2017. Now, there's only a short time left to be welcomed to the Rock before this musical closes on October 2. Come From Away is based on a true story from 2001, when thousands of plane passengers were rerouted to Gander, Newfoundland in the wake of 9/11. On a moment's notice, the residents of the town moved to shelter, feed, and comfort their visitors. In the following week, they formed lifelong bonds, finding hope amid tragedy. Tony-nominated original cast member Jenn Colella is back in the show for the summer, and much of the original cast never left. Be sure to catch this heartwarming musical before Come From Away goes away.

Another hundred people just got off the train to see Company before it closes July 31, so make sure you're one of them! This revival of the classic Stephen Sondheim musical received five 2022 Tony Awards — the most of any musical in the season — including Best Musical Revival and Best Featured Actor and Actress for Matt Doyle and Patti LuPone. The original musical centered on a 35-year old bachelor, Bobby, but this version makes the character a single woman, Bobbie, instead. Faced with pressure from her married friends, she has to decide whether she wants to settle down. You won't want to miss this visionary interpretation by director Marianne Elliott, the most awarded female director in Broadway history.

One of the starriest casts on stage this year will be ending their term on Broadway August 14. Vanessa Williams, Julianne Hough, Rachel Dratch, Lea DeLaria, Julie White, Suzy Nakamura, and Lilli Cooper make up the cast of POTUS, a farce that takes place behind the closed doors of the White House. There, a bumbling president has blown a public relations flub into an international crisis, and it's up to the women surrounding him to fix it, even as they contend with multiple issues of their own. With dancing, karaoke, physical comedy, and witty put-downs at every turn, politics have never been so hilarious.

The Minutes

The minutes are ticking away for you to catch this play by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts, but luckily, you can get tickets in a matter of minutes right now. Running through July 10, The Minutes is a mystery set at a seemingly ordinary town council meeting, where a local shows up asking what he missed the previous week. As it turns out, he missed a lot, and his innocent questions end up uncovering the town's secret, bloody history. Letts himself presides over the cast, which also features Tony winner Jessie Mueller, Schitt's Creek star Noah Reid, Orange Is the New Black star Blair Brown, and more.

American Buffalo

You don't want to have to beg, borrow, or steal to snag tickets to American Buffalo before it closes on July 10, so make sure you get them now. You'll see three major stars up close: Tony Award winner Laurence Fishburne, Oscar winner Sam Rockwell, and Emmy winner Darren Criss play a trio of hustlers who plan to steal a valuable buffalo nickel after Fishburne's character undersold it at his junk shop. As tensions rise between the men during planning, David Mamet's play — which has been revived on Broadway multiple times before — becomes more relevant then ever in its story of what people will do for greed.

Plaza Suite

Plaza Suite's extended stay on Broadway is coming to an end soon. The show is checking out of the Hudson Theatre on July 10, so don't miss your last chance to see Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker live. In Neil Simon's farce, they play three different couples staying in the Plaza Hotel at separate times. In Act 1, they're the Nashes, whose longstanding marriage has gone sour. In Act 2, they're Jesse Kiplinger and Muriel Tate, high school sweethearts rekindling their old flame after 17 years. And in Act 3, they're the Hubleys, parents of a bride who's gotten cold feet minutes before her wedding. The New York Theatre Guide review of Plaza Suite sums it up best: "The show packs moments that are gleefully LOL, is deeper than you might expect, and the real-life married stars co-piloting this vintage vehicle are in fine form."
